  1. OMG I completely forgot about Magic by B.o.B. and Rivers Cuomo! That was my jam when it came out! I feel like Disney songs are all magical for me.

  2. I’d have to go with either “Magic Bus” or the Colbie Caillat song – both good for completely different reasons! I also love this idea for a post – I have so many carefully curated playlists, but none by theme like this!

  3. I don’t think I realized how many songs there are about magic! Great playlist 🙂

  4. This post is a great musical round-up! I didn’t know I liked so many of these songs until I saw them all in one place. Love that 80s music!
